I'll be there, hopefully with others in tow. Looks like a good ground.

Levy N'Zoungou, the 18 year-old toulousain prop trialling at Saints has apparently signed a contract.

Great game. Wigan played the ref better.

I know the trouble with the 'th' (teaching English over here) but it's enjoyable nonetheless. I'm gonna try to always watch it on BeIN from now on.

Watching this in French is hilarious, Smith is Smiss, Handley is Ondley and Bateman is Batman!

The problem there is that we shouldn't be trying to divide it into major nations and heritage nations, if we have one nation for life then we don't end up with this impregnable hierarchy.




#3150019 Disciplinary - Ben Currie

Posted by wackojacko on 30 June 2015 - 11:59 AM

Lenient IMO. Do refs need more self-respect? ;)




#3148315 Steve Matai, he may be a veteran but he has still got it.

Posted by wackojacko on 27 June 2015 - 02:26 PM

If he had ever put half as much effort into his all round game as he did into trying to prove how tough he is, he'd have been a good player. 

 

But where's the fun in that?

I have only one question... how do you cope with being a league-man living in Pau? 

 

I travel :P  It's not much different to back in England near Bournemouth...




#3147910 French Update

I've started writing some articles for TOXIII (in English and French). The first one's here: http://www.to13.com/...samuel-jackson/ http://www.to13.com/...samuel-jackson/  

 

I ended up getting to it a bit late and it was published even later in the end so a lot of it was no longer relevant and got cut but if anyone has any comments or suggestions they would be gratefully received.

#3142427 RLIF head Collier: France, Wales & Scotland can progress to top level easily

Posted by wackojacko on 17 June 2015 - 05:18 PM

France and Wales sure, but Scotland? Is it two or three clubs they've got? Bar David Scott, all they have is a bit of luck with heritage players.

Two bizarre no-try decisions.

Catalans U19s entry to the SL U19s competition has been confirmed for next season after this year's transitional period.

Futtocks same thing with England, Irish potato famine or coughing on blankets with influenza and giving them to Maori... are some of the worst examples!

 

Back on topic it would be good to see a map of the 96 departments of mainland France in relation to rugby league, what and how many departments of France would the game have a strong presence in Tarn, Aude... how many departments would game have any presence in even if only one community amateur club? and how many departments would game have no presence in at all?
